This Edible Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is such a fun, tasty, easy treat and comes together in minutes!
A FUN COOKIE DOUGH TREAT
Some of my fondest childhood memories are sneaking some of the cookie dough out of the bowl when my mom was making cookies. We didn't really know at the time that eating raw cookie dough wasn't the best idea because of pesky bacteria. But now I know better and I love creating safe-to-eat edible cookie dough. This Edible Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough will suit all those pumpkin and cookie dough cravings. It's a delicious fall-inspired recipe. The chocolate chips are a great addition to the texture as well. If you are looking for a tasty party treat (or maybe just a late night snack), then you have to make my Edible Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough recipe!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Heat treating just means we are getting the flour sufficiently hot enough to kill any bacteria (like E. coli). This is quick and easy and only takes about 5 minutes. Its worth it to keep it safe to eat.
You can add chopped nuts or any candy chocolate pieces.
I love mixing chocolate chips and mini chocolate chips in this recipe. But butterscotch chips or toffee chips with the pumpkin is a great flavor combination. You can also use any flavor chocolate chips that you'd like. I used semi-sweet but milk and dark chocolate will work as well. Hersheys makes a cinnamon chip that I think would also be really good.
If you want more of a pumpkin pie flavor in this recipe, add more pumpkin pie spice. Taste as you go until you reach your desired flavor.
No. You will need to use only pure pumpkin puree for this recipe. The pumpkin pie filling is obviously mostly a liquid because it has evaporated milk in it so it would never work with this.
You sure could. If I were serving this at a party, I would serve it with graham crackers and additional spoons. That way guests can enjoy it on the graham crackers or just scoop it up on spoons.
